Anonymous claims that the operating system, ‘Anonymous-OS’ is fake

Yesterdaywe reportedthat, for rsons that we couldn’t entirely understand, Anonymous had relsed its own Linux distribution.Not long after, one of the active Anonymous Twitter accounts tweeted that the operating system is in fact fake, and is “wrapped in Trojans”.AnonOps@anonopsThe Anon OS is fake it is wrapped in trojans. RT15 Mar 12
ReplyRetweetFavoriteThe OS has been downloaded over 20,000 times in less than four days, and while a couple of the comments onSourceFourgeindie that it is fake, it still has a user rating of 62%, with 37 users giving it the thumbs up.The same tweet has also been shared by other Anonymous-labeled accounts includingAnonNewsSecandYourAnonNews:Anonymous@YourAnonNewsSeeing lots of news about just-relsed purported "Anonymous OS." BE CAREFUL! Remember the Zeus Trojan incident w/Slowloris recently!15 Mar 12
ReplyRetweetFavoriteWhoever is behind the OS has shot back with apost, saying:The #anonops on their twitter account say “That Anonymous-OS is wrapped in trojans.”
Plse people… in our world, in Linux and opensource world, there is not virus.If any user believe that Anonymous-OS “is wrapped in trojans” or “backdoored OS by any Law enforcement Company or ” plse don’t download it!But don’t misld the world that Linux is dangerous and has trojans!It’s also worth noting that in the original post announcing the OS, the well-known Anonymous slogan has seen a slight change (emphasis is our own):We are Anonymous.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.
Don’t expect us, we are alrdy here!The departure from the typical Anonymous sign off could be an indiion that there is definitely more here than meets the eye.Either way, whether fake or not, as we advised rlier, it’s definitely not worth taking the risk of downloading the OS, no matter how curious you happen to be.Source: TNW
